taken from my book, "Dominance Issues"

Strenuous Worthlessness


I could tell you all day

__the things that are wrong with my brain

But if the list never stops

__then you won't give a fuck

So why even bother telling you?

Lay with me!

You don't need my love?

Leave me then!

Be my number "none"

And walk on out on me

As my love's only startin' to begin

There's no point in love

If it's not mutual I'm giving up

Not a thought of how we could be "one"

You won't sleep with me

We're just not equal

It takes me too much time

__to make any one mine

So no one can be mine

But caring is not what you can do

So I'll take myself away

__from the likes of you

And you won't be with me

Because "how could you?"
